View – Using Powershell to Check ADAM Replication Status

Recently ran into some issues where replication on the View ADAM database wasn’t going too well. Instead of checking the replication status by RDPing into each View Connection and running the repadmin command, I created a Powershell script to do it for me. This script also helped with verification due to being able to report all the Connection servers’ status within a single window.

Only item to note: you will have to prepopulate the script with the desired Connection servers

I also converted the above into a little more automated script that’s usable only from one of the Connection servers, thanks to how the View API ties into PowerCLI…

Items to note:

  • This has to be run through the View PowerCLI module, which only works on Connection servers.
  • It’s designed to be run as a one liner.
  • It will report back the replication status on all the Connection servers involved in that particular View environment.

Note: this was a script that worked in my environment. There is no warranty or support with this script, please use at your own risk.
